This morning on Tuesday’s edition of the ABC gabfest The View, GH star Ryan Paevey (Nathan) joined the ladies of the panel as a special guest co-host.  Ryan joined Rosie Perez, Whoopi Goldberg, Nicolle Wallace, and another guest co-host Glee’s Naya Rivera for the hour.

In one segment, Whoopi discussed that over this past weekend, 50 Shades of Grey opened nationwide and garnered over 94 million dollars at the box-office.  She then launched into how guest co-host Ryan Paevey actually auditioned for the role of Christian Grey that ultimately went to actor Jamie Dornan.

In a fun moment, Ryan takes the ladies through his “50 Shades” audition process, and why he thinks he was not selected for the role!  Later, Naya Rivera chimes in that she took to Twitter to find about what people thought of Dornan in the lead role, and said that women were expecting someone taller and with more muscles, and more manly, hence Paevey!

Watch the segment after the jump!  How do you think Ryan fared on The View?  Do you think he would have made the perfect Christian Grey?  Comment below!

Didn’t watch the View or the clip. When is ABC going to realize the only way to get the soap fans back is by restoring AMC & OLTL? Bring back Love In The Afternoon!!! And ABC7NY stop interrupting GH for “Breaking News” especially when it involves 3 idiots!

Agree 100% with your part 2. You’d think that given the 500 hours of local news that they air each day, they’d save minor items for then and quit interrupting GH, one of the few programs that I enjoy and love to escape with. And it’s laughable how everything, such as a water main break or a road closure, is labeled “Breaking News”. But sorry Linda, ABC will never bring back AMC and OLTL. That ship has long sailed and they clearly have no regrets, now 4 years later. At this point in time, you and others truly need to… Read more »

I have not watched anything on the alphabet network since the last day OLTL aired. The only reason I looked at this post was to learn who Ryan Paevey is.

You are so right. The only way to resort their viewership is to bring back AMC and OLTL.

Christie, in a very eloquent way, spoke the truth. However, by protesting and not watching GH we run the risk of losing that as well.

Folks, AMC & OLTL are NEVER coming back to ABC. Please understand that. For starters, do you realize how much it would cost ABC to even buy back the rights to the shows from Prospect Park? Not to mention rebuild sets and rehire actors, writers, etc without any promise that the shows would draw enough viewership to be profitable again? Also, where exactly would ABC place them in their daily lineup now? It’s NOT happening. Quite frankly, it’s very sad and downright pathetic that there are some soap fans that STILL can’t move on from this already.

I do not watch ABC either. I would only watch if AMC came back. I just want ABC to go away forever. I support the soaps by watching Y&R. No I will not get over it.

I was a loyal AMC/OLTL fan. I grieved both shows, but especially OLTL. It was. Great show with a strong audience; there was no reason to cancel. That said, I do not boycott ABC. GH is strong show, and my watching helps it to stay relevant.

ABC will never bring back these shows, so it’s time to move forward. Support the shows we do have left on daytime, and watch Ryan Peavey on The View. It can only help!

Please people for your own sanity MOVE ON ALREADY. It’s been YEARS since your soaps went off. If a boyfriend left you and you were still waiting for him to come running back to you 2 YEARS LATER, you would have to admit that that was a psychological problem. If they cancelled Two Broke Girls, would you stop watching ALL of CBS?

Totally serious: you people have a big problem.

They invite the man onto the show, let him talk! They also did not let Naya Rivera speak either. Rude.

TOTALLY AGREE.

Within 15 seconds of watching this clip I was reminded how awful this show is.

(Barbara Walters will pay in the afterlife for this.)

They yenta it up on all these shows. It is annoying for any guest to say anything without someone cutting them off. Have ALL the women yack it up and give their VIEW and then when a guest comes on only have one or two women in the segment.

I have not read nor seen 50 Shades of Gray,, doing so might ruin my sex life and I’d start to shop at Madards….
nonetheless! I could see Ryan as Christian just because he is sexy hot!

ever notice- 50 shades of grey sounds like a home decorating book .. LOL !!

Seriously, though, I cannot understand what the big hype is all about. I get more thrills watching my soaps or watching my daughter take her first steps. Those who make such a ruckus, really need to get a life. JMO.

Jamie Dornan/Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson/ Anastasia Steele, neither are models and both are much like ordinary looking people..
Both of them being just nice looking was great casting because people could relate to Christian and Anastasia..
Ryan was way too gorgeous, his model sexy body was to hot to be Christian..
The casting of more-so regular people is what made the movie more excitingly believable..

Right on, Su. There is nothing remarkable about those actors/actresses. Dakota, unfortunately fell far, far from the apple tree which is her mother, the gorgeous Melanie.

Saw the show. They completely ignored him as they babbled, cackled and shrieked their way through hot topics. They then talked about fashion week and how skinny models are, completely oblivious to the fact Ryan is a model…not even bringing him into that conversation. Whoopie then went on to describe wrongly how Ryan as Det West caught the bomb on the Haunted Star….and then interrupted his answer regarding his fifty shades audition…sigh….with it all the words he did manage to get in were articulate and intelligent. He came off charming, adorable and non pretentious…love!

Rebecca…YEAH, REALLY!!!!! A-L-L 3 of them (ESPECIALLY Whoopi!!!!!) are nothing but annoying, yammering and even more clueless AIRHEADS!!!!! As far as I’m concerned, Ryan brought some MUCH-NEEDED C-L-A-S-S to The View!!!!!! RYAN ROCKS!!!!!!

Take care, Rebecca. Peace.

Not even a GH star can make me turn on The View anymore. The View has run it’s course and needs to be put out of its misery ASAP already, imo. It’s amazing to think that right now, GH seems relatively safe for the forseeable future while The View is on the chopping block. Who would have thought that 3-4 years ago?

I hate labeling myself as a turncoat, but I’m a turncoat. It took many opinions from many different posters to open my eyes. I loved THE VIEW as it was….as my Gran saw it back in the day…and myself. The panel is not stupid…just obnoxiously oh- listen-to-me-listen-to-me….what-I-have-to-say-is-so-much-more-important!! I am sort of changing my tune….which is so unlike me. I usually am steadfast and stick to my guns. But, I must agree with all you, my soap friends, …..I was completely disappointed. I just watched the segment—-FASHION WEEK was absolutely astounding, by the by—- I felt so badly for Ryan….it was… Read more »

“The panel is not stupid…just obnoxiously oh- listen-to-me-listen-to-me….what-I-have-to-say-is-so-much-more-important!!” Unfortunately, CeeCee THE ABOVE is what the world is coming to. Just think about all those cell phone commercials that air during primetime. The actors are all portrayed as egocentric. I nearly lost my breakfast recently when I saw a commercial for Eggo waffles where the idiot family was bragging about WHO would post a picture of their nobody-gives-a-rat’s-ass waffle on Twitter or Instagram. Really? Is this what has become of us? The media and advertising take absolutely ZERO responsibility for the way they push this me-me-me crap at the general public.… Read more »

Does the fact that he went on an audition give him credibility as an actor? I think a more interesting aspect of that story would be to find out what the casting director thought. I’m pretty sure I know the answer.

He did a great job and I think a huge star in the making. The camera loved him yesterday.

For those not watching ABC because of AMC and OLTL, that is your choice. But, you are damaging GH with that mentality. The actors from both shows have moved on. The networks are not going to pull a show from the archives when they can spend a fraction on a talk show, game show, local news, etc.

A completely pointless appearance, but he did look cute. He also did slightly better than Jason Thompson’s appearance last year.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

Courtesy/ABC

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.
